CulturED Cafe presents Daniel Wells

Thursday 24 July, 7:30pm

Hosted by the Archdiocesan Office for Youth

North Melbourne AFL star Daniel Wells is our guest for CulturED Café. He was 15 when he first played in the state league representing Western Australia and it took only three years before he was selected in the 2002 National Draft to play for North Melbourne. Since then, despite some injuries, he has become a force to be reckoned with on the field winning two best and fairest awards. Although not raised a Catholic, Daniel Wells became a Catholic after meeting his wife Mariangela. Join us to hear his story at CulturED Café.
